Construction Materials and Testing 2018 FINAL EXPERIMENT TITLE: “A Study on compressive strength of concrete using castor oil” Objectives: The researcher objective is to determine the effectiveness of the castor oil extract to increase the compressive strength of the concrete. Specifically, the objectives of the are to: 1. To compare the slump between concrete with castor oil extract and without castor oil extract 2. To determine the best concentration of the castor oil extract to increase the compressive strength of the concrete. Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs): The students shall be able to: Apply all standards set by ASTM Produce a sample product using Castor oil as an admixture in concrete. Have detailed knowledge in compressive strength. Discussion: Abstract This paper will show that castor oil is a good alternative for soybean oil and to evaluate the effectiveness as an admixture in concrete, including the impacts it has on it. The castor oil and soybean oil have a similar-looking chemical structure. Both have fatty acid components and families of oleic acid such as linoleic acid. Each trial will consist of 0%, 0.25%, 0.5%, and 1% castor oil, and will be tested for its compressive strength. Technological Institute of the Philippines 1 | P a g e

Construction Materials and Testing 2018 CHAPTER One: THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND Introduction The simple factors of lifestyles for a human being is food, clothes and haven among this shelter is viewed dearer one in the current lifestyles and in order to achieve shelter early man had invented a hut made of trees and leaves and located those matters are having energy to withstand exceptional calamities later on year and years handed in cutting-edge dream residence and cement. Concrete was invented similarly usage of metal in concrete is broadly spread. More over the contemporary technologies and innovations are the contemporary world and researchers are working on cement and concrete in unique aspects generally cement is manufactured from manufacturing unit with specific chemical properties specifically in market we can see normal cement, Portland cement and Portland pozzolanic cement. The predominant difference of these merchandise in the course of the powdering of clinkers gypsum is delivered to beautify the setting of cement like this merchandise called as additives similarly Admixtures are additionally a merchandise delivered to concrete which are other than elements of concrete such as cement, best aggregates, coarse aggregates and water which exhibits a unique property. Nowadays, for pleasant in building with silent aspects such greater sustainability more durable, thermal permeability and many others are acquired with chemical admixtures and chemical substances components which are high-priced in basic terms as one hundred Technological Institute of the Philippines 2 | P a g e

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
